Text

Nobody knows the trouble I see,
Nobody knows but Jesus,
Nobody knows the trouble I see,
Glory, Hallelujah!

Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down, oh yes Lord,
Sometimes I'm almost to the ground, oh yes Lord.

Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down, oh yes Lord,
But all the time I'm heavenly bound, oh yes Lord.

If you get there before I do, oh yes Lord,
Tell all my friends I'm coming too, oh yes Lord.

(traditional American spiritual)
